Magical Night Necklace Instructions
Designed by Cheri Carlson

Chain and CzechMates Cabochon Beads combine in a splendid way in this dramatic necklace design. We made symmetrical scallops of chain between each Cabochon Bead, but feel free to mix it up with random lengths of scallops. You can even cut and hang fringes of chain for another take on this style.

Step one:
Thread one end of the gunmetal-plated double rollo chain onto jewelry wire that is approximately 12 inches long. Leave about a three-inch tail on the jewelry wire and add a Bead Stopper. Thread the jewelry wire through the bottom hole of a CzechMates 2-hole 7mm oxidized bronze Cabochon Bead. For symmetrical scallops in your chain, count 26 links from the link that is on the wire, then thread the last link through the wire. If you keep the chain from twisting, the loops will hang nicely. Repeat this step three times.

Step two:
Add a Cabochon Bead and then count 30 links from the link that is on the wire and thread the last link through the wire. Repeat this step four times.

Step three:
Add a Cabochon Bead and then make a scallop with 26 links of chain. Repeat three times.

Step four:
Thread the wire through a TierraCast 2x2mm black finish brass crimp tube and a 4.5mm gunmetal-plated 21 gauge open jump ring. Go back through the crimp tube and crimp in place. Do not trim the wire, as you will be threading this length through the top of your cabochon beads.

Step five:
Add a TOHO 15/0 Bead Round in transparent smokey gray to this wire coming out of your crimp tube. Then, thread the wire through the top stringing holes of your Cabochon Beads.

Step six:
Remove the Bead Stopper from this end of the necklace and thread both ends of the jewelry wire through another 15/0 TOHO and a crimp tube. Thread one of the strands through a jump ring and back through the crimp tube. You will have three strands of wire in the crimp tube at this point. Crimp in place and trim the wires.

Step seven:
Stack six to eight jump rings over the wires on one end of your beaded strand to hide the crimp. You can do this by removing the jump ring attached at the crimp and sliding the jump rings over the wire or you can open and close the jump rings to put them in place. Cut a length of chain approximately 7 inches long and attach it to the jump ring at the end of your beaded strand. Attach a gunmetal-plated 9x5mm trigger clasp to the end of the chain using a jump ring.

Step eight:
Repeat step eight for the other side of the necklace, making sure to only attach a jump ring to the chain, as a station for the clasp.
